    Whatever happens to the presidential candidacy of former neurosurgeon Ben Carson, the news conference he held in South Florida this weekend will live on. It was as if the sleepy-eyed motivational speaker known to millions of people had been swapped out for a ringer - a flame-breathing, uncompromising scourge of media bias. "There is a desperation on behalf of some to try to find a way to tarnish me," he said. "My prediction is that all of you guys trying to pile on is going to help me. When I go out to these book signings and meet these thousands...

    New independent circulation numbers show a sharp decline in readership of Politico and other left-leaning news websites, an ominous trend for the suburban Virginia-based news outlet and its peers as Americans head into an election year. Recently published and publicly available Web traffic data indicates that “unique visitor” traffic to in November 2011 was 15 percent lower than in the previous month, and 31 percent lower than in November 2010. The data, from Compete, Inc., also show an overall two-year decline. Political websites gain and lose readers throughout election cycles, with presidential election years trending higher in unique Web...

    OPINION, Nov. 30, 2011 /Christian Newswire/ -- The following is submitted by Day Gardner: There is a plot to destroy Herman Cain--we see it in the money hungry women vying for 15 minutes of fame and fortune and we see it in the liberal media's assassination of Herman Cain. The saddest thing is that America is being sucker-punched by the liberal media. Most of them are so deep in Obama's trench that there are no limits to how low they will go. They knew that all they had to do was plant a seed... even if it's a seed pod...

    With the mainstream media giddily reporting on an alleged affair involving Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain, how long can it be before they break the news that their 2004 vice presidential candidate conceived a "love child" with his mistress, Rielle Hunter? The left is trying to destroy Cain with a miasma of hazy accusations leveled by three troubled women. Considered individually, the accusations are utterly unbelievable. They are even less credible taken together. This is how liberals destroy a man, out of nothing. After the first round of baseless accusations against Cain, an endless stream of pundits rolled out the...

    The female bodybuilder who once ran a bicycle business with latest Herman Cain accuser Ginger White says the Atlanta woman never mentioned the Republican presidential candidate, who she says was her lover for 13 years. "His name has never come up," said Kimberly Vay, who told ABC News that she and White were former business partners. But Vay, who filed and won a libel lawsuit against White, refused to comment directly when asked whether she considers White's accusations about Cain credible. "When you see the details of my lawsuit," said Vay, "they will speak for themselves." She then referred ABC...

    In breaking news this afternoon, a Georgia woman is claiming that she had a 13-year affair with Herman Cain. She says she has documents (whatever they might be) which can back it up. In what can only be described as the guiltiest-looking no-comment statement in the history of politics, Cain’s lawyer offered this absurd response (especially hilarious parts in bold): *snip* One of two things is true about this statement. Either Mr. Cain and his attorney are basing their views on what is an appropriate subject of media scrutiny for political candidates on the way politics work on another planet...

    Ginger White, who today announced that she had a thirteen-year affair with Herman Cain, was the defendant in a libel suit this year. A judge ruled in favor of the plaintiff, Kimberly Bay, and stated that Ms. White had falsely libeled Ms. Bay. Ms. White reportedly lost the suit because she did not even bother responding to the case. Ms. Bay had also sought a temporary stalking protective order against Ms. White, citing harassing emails, texts, and defamation of character. This case, however, was dismissed. When asked about the libel suit in her interview with Fox Five, and why she...

    A majority of American voters think the sexual harassment claims made against Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain are motivated by something other than fairness. A minority thinks the allegations are serious enough to disqualify him from the race. Cain has been battling claims that he sexually harassed four women more than a decade ago. Read more:

    Herman Cain, who is seeking the Republican presidential nomination, has hired a high-profile defamation lawyer to keep an eye on the sexual harassment accusations made public by two women this week. Atlanta attorney Lin Wood told Reuters Thursday he was not hired to scare, intimidate or threaten anyone from making statements, but to monitor the accusations against Cain and respond accordingly. Wood, a top libel and defamation lawyer, was hired on Monday morning when it became clear that Sharon Bialek was about to become the first of four women alleging inappropriate behavior by Cain to go public with her accusations....

    Washington (CNN) - Herman Cain accuser Karen Kraushaar is "not considering a press conference" if only she and the other named accuser, Sharon Bialek, are willing to participate, according to a source close to Kraushaar. "She still would like to have a press conference with all four women" who have accused Cain of sexual harassment, the source said, but it has not yet come together.

    It’s a he said, she said. And I side with him. I liked Herman Cain before this current difficulty, and I like him now. I don’t believe he did it. And even if he did do it, I’m not bothered enough to dump him. The worst-case scenario is that 15 years ago he propositioned some women. If so, that’s between him and his wife. But I don’t believe this is about passion. This is about politics. And this isn’t just a high-tech lynching, it is a coup by innuendo. Because Herman Cain isn’t really the victim here. We are. As...

    All the ingredients are here. We have a potentially powerful politician, a hopelessly flimsy accusation of sexual misconduct and a predictable media, desperate to fill broadcast hours. Was there really ever any doubt that alleged civil rights attorney Gloria Allred would get involved? After all, whether she’s demonstrating anal sex using a baseball bat, buddying up to bereft pornstars or inserting herself into the life of Chaz Bono, she’s proven that her proper place is in front of a camera,

    All this week, the Cain campaign and his supporters have linked his travails to Clarence Thomas’ experience at the Senate confirmation hearings twenty years ago; now a Cain super-PAC is making it official with their new web-only spot, “High-Tech Lynching.” The name comes directly from now-Justice Thomas’ rebuttal to sexual harassment allegations that popped up out of nowhere when Anita Hill testified in the Senate. Conservative outrage has not dimmed from that Howard Metzenbaum-sponsored spectacle, and the super-PAC clearly wants to channel it to his defense now: CLICK ABOVE LINK FOR THE VIDEO There are a couple of differences between...

Simon claims it Herman Cain's botched response that is "derailing his own campaign" and not the Politico for continuing to hound and pressure the candidate.

And he says he knows just where to look for the guy who did it: At 815 Slaters Lane in Alexandria, Virginia, a low-slung former warehouse in the shadow of a coal plant. There, beside rusting rail lines, is the home of OnMessage Inc., a Republican-leaning consulting firm recently hired to bolster Texas Gov. Rick Perry’s presidential campaign.

    So far, neither of the two alleged complainants from Herman Cain’s tenure at the National Restaurant Association have come forward publicly, although it appears at least one would like NRA to release her from her confidentiality agreement to do so. However, a pollster who worked for NRA at the time told KTOK in Oklahoma that he witnessed both incidents — and that if the women talk, Cain’s candidacy would be over: Interviewed today on KTOK’s Mullins in the Morning, [Chris] Wilson, of Wilson-Perkins-Allen Opinion Research headquartered in Washington, D.C. explained he was a witness to the incident. “I was the...

    Is there another shoe? If so, how big? And how hard might it come down on Herman Cain, who so far, has managed to deflect — albeit awkwardly — the allegations of sexual harassment swirling around him this week? “She’s been very upset about this since the story broke last Sunday because Mr. Cain has been giving the impression she came out and made false allegations,” Joel Bennett, the lawyer for one of Cain’s accusers said in an interview on CNN last night. “That’s certainly not true and she’s still deciding once we hear from the Restaurant Association what she’ll...
